CCP Recertifications - 2023
CCP Exam Registration
CCP Forms and Requests

The CCP Certification Program began its efforts to offer a California certification designation starting in 2016. Then by February 9, 2018, and throughout 2019, held its Inaugural CCP Exams where successful paralegals became today's first California Certified Paralegal.

As the profession, everyday work experiences, education programs and CAPA's Certification program experienced many challenges, restructuring, rethinking and disruptions during 2019 - 2022; we are all looking forward to starting 2023 by setting  future CCP Exam dates, availability, and promotion. We hope to provide each and every one of you and those who are seeking the California certification for 2023 and thereafter with an opportunity to learn more about the program and then take the CCP Exam.

2023 Recertifications - February 9, 2023, Certifications were granted a 30 day grace period to provide their required Forty Hours (40) of MCLE Credits, those represent 8 credit hours of California required MCLE (Legal Ethics and General Law/Specialized Law) for each full two year term and 4 credit hours of California required MCLE Credits for the final one year term, the remaining 20 credit hours are to be earned by participating in additional General Law and Specialized Law events that are eligible for MCLE pursuant to the Rules and Regulations required by the State Bar of California.  

If your expiration date was February 9th, you were sent a MCLE Tracking Worksheet to input the MCLE units for each reporting period (all at this time due to the pandemic and its residual effects), provide valid Certificate of Attendances for each event, and submit directly to CCP Administration prior to the end of the grace period (March 9, 2023).

There is also a Recertification Application that will need to be submitted along with the applicable Certification Fee for the term that will expire February 9, 2028, for the continuation of your designation.  The Application/Fee must be remitted before March 1, 2023, and is available, at this time, only for those whose designation are currently expiring.

If you have any questions, please contact CCP Administration starting on Tuesday, February 21.

Some of the items on this tab have been static during the pandemic, the CCP Certification Committee is considering a 2023 CCP Exam  and Retake schedule. 

We will provide updated information as soon as it can be released and will update this page with further and upcoming 2023 recertification details.


Note: Any Applicant who has taken the CCP Exam during the Inaugural Period (February 2018 through November 2019) must apply as a Retake Examinee.
